STRAIGHT UP WITH SAEON
‘This year, I set out to stake a claim in the industry. I set out to solidify a base for myself. To erase perceptions and replace them with respect for my craft and though still far away from my end goal, I’m well on my way to achieving it. The acceptance of “Trapn B”, a genre of music I created to suit SAEON MORUDA’s purposes has been overwhelmingly inspiring, reiterating the fact that I made the best choice for my career by just being myself. From the release of Dé Bè Cypher to Nínu Clubí to My PYT Freestyle Cover and now to #Aii, the milestones keep increasing. What’s inspiring about it all is that it’s sparked up a movement.
There are so many females who I find are like SAEON MORUDA, female, yet not overly girlie. And they relate! For me this is a great achievement and testament to the fact that the need to be extremely sexy in order to be heard isn’t the compulsory norm anymore. This is not to downplay other sexy brands, this is to stress that sexiness isn’t just an outward look. Not just the only means to share a craft. It isn’t just about “showing skin”. Instead, it’s innate. In that it’s an aura that oozes, regardless of if one is fully covered up in baggies or sackcloth. Or in men’s wear even as a female.
‘Sexiness is in one’s attitude, one’s demeanour. Sexiness is true to self. That’s what attracts! The moment I learned that, I was able to truly create, able to truly inspire and more importantly learn that I’m not in competition with anyone. I’m just trying to be better than I’ve ever been and keep at it. I’m finally being heard and taken seriously in an industry that is so saturated and hard to break out in and this makes my heart smile.
‘Thankful to every #MORUDAN rocking with the #BoyChick SAEON MORUDA with the #87Swags. Shout out to every female doing what they love, everyone with the aim to positively inspire. Shout out to you if you dare to be different. You are sparking up change; the only constant so keep at it. You never know whom you’ll inspire.’ – SAEON
